Bear Proofing Public Sites--Upper Yaak Green Box Site

Bear Proofing Public Sites--Upper Yaak Green Box Site
In the Upper Yaak, the County Department of Environmental Health and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks opened a "green box site" where dumpsters are enclosed within chain link, barb wire and electric fencing. To further protect bears, the dumpsters are available only from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the months of May to October. For more on using electric fences to create bear proof spaces, contact an FWP bear manager.
